Re: How Much Space For Root

With a separate /home partition and installing with 'something else' you do not need to change fstab. You installed 20. Did the installer allow you to create a separate home without wiping it’s contents? I was installing 20.1. I did have to change fstab. Doing the “Something Else” install to create...

Re: How Much Space For Root

I was able to install 20.1, preserving /home. I changed fstab so that home would been seen. I believe the reason for not doing a separate /home is that the old programs in /home will cause problems in 20.1. If I do a default install, what should not be copied back to 20.1 from my backed up home, or ...

Re: How Much Space For Root

I will install with a separate Home, no swap or tmp. How much space do I need to allot for /? It depends on what software you're going to install, if it's going to be of the Flatpak, Snap, or AppImage variety, what kind of Timeshift profiles you're going to run and at what frequency, how many kerne...

No Menu Toolbar

Any reason why FF comes up on a new install without the Menu Toolbar? That would be a problem for someones first Linux install. Is that a default by Mozilla ?

Re: Increase root filesystem /

I had no problems increasing / and reducing home. GParted from a DVD is the best way. GParted included in your distro is second best. GParted in the live install "Something Else" session does not do as many things as the regular GParted.. Of course "backup" is not very well defin...
